urlI’m a Google+ fan. Odds are you are not.

The number one reason I hear that people are not on Google+ is that they simply don’t see enough value when they log in. With that in mind, here are some people and pages to add to your Google+ circles.

Follow them all, and you’ll never call Google+ a ghost town again.
